Cronkite and Bergman she is clearly not.

You can almost see her face change to "how do I walk back from that" but then the camera cuts to the guest.

That's what is so interesting about it to me. Stupid crap gets said on cable news all the time, sometimes it's sincerely held beliefs (Hannity comes to mind) and others it's a simple brain fart (annnnd boom goes the dynamite, for example).

I wouldn't call it brave or ballsy.
I think his use of an armored vehicle makes him look as if he was quite afraid to be injured or killed.

Apparently he wasn't very skilled in combat, he should have been able to accomplish much more with what he had at his disposal.

In actuality, he probably would have accomplished more if he wasn't in the vehicle. The gun ports that were in that van were not designed for offensive shooting.

There are a number of irregularities in what's being reported. There are inconsistent parts of the narrative. A lot of people got paid vacations and who knows what else with the next budget cycle.

The integrity of the entire US justice system relies on LEO's to handle evidence and report facts. It's really down to that isn't it?

So what do you really have?

CNN anchor Fredericka Whitfield has apologized:

"Yesterday, during a segment on the Dallas Police Department attack, I used the words 'courageous' and 'brave' when discussing the gunman. I misspoke and in no way believe the gunman was courageous nor brave."

Some apology and a lot of people are not falling for it, including the Dallas Police Officer's Association:

"[Fredericka Whitfield], police officers around the world are still waiting for an apology. Simply stating 'I misspoke' is NOT a sincere apology."

thescoopblog.dallasnews.com...

She has since apologized again, only this time using the word 'terribly' misspoke and "sincerely' apologize. LOL.

I think they're waiting to hear her praise the men in blue for protecting us from criminals on the streets everyday. Doesn't sound like she'll ever say THAT.

ETA: The statement I quoted was actually from the Fort Worth Police Association. There is also a statement from the Dallas Police Association, included in article.

Translated as "check off that box and where's my paycheck?"

And seriously...."I understand now how offensive those words are." Or whatever it was worded after "I understand now"....Seriously? Seriously?!?

I think she was stating how she felt about the gunman and that's why she said it in the first place.

Internet is on fire, calling for her resignation. I guess we will see what happens.

Yea. That "apology" isn't doing her any favors.

I doubt she'll lose the job though.

It was actually suicide by cop

Maybe she mean't he had more balls than brains...who knows thats a little strange.....still that is some major stupid trying to attack police at the station......

I know first hand how difficult and painful having a child in the system,little boy was taken,it took me the best part of a year remaining calm in the face of authority to get him back....they tried hard to make me snap but my resolve was stronger....i kind of understand how that guy feels but at the end of the day if he cannot manage his own anger he shouldnt be teaching and being a role model.... it saddens me to say this but his kids may be better off now this has happened....

As much as i disagree with the way some police are acting in the states you guys are a needed part of our society and are mostly good,getting attacked by random people because they are pissed with the system is not cool...

Sorry DPD, FOP et al. The station's internal affairs department has thoroughly investigated her statement and have concluded that her original statement was in accord with policy.

Further criticism of this brave journalist could result in hesitation in the future, which could result in her not going home at the end of her shift. And then the police would LITERALLY HAVE BLOOD ON THEIR HANDS.

I think that LEOs don't understand how tough a journalist's job is. So until you put on the pen, you are all just armchair quarterbacks. After all, it's what SHE thinks in the heat of the moment that counts. There are Constitutional precedents that confirm that. So while LEOs may not like how it appears to them, it's the way it has to be.

(did I miss any stupid cop cliches?)

Her apology will never be good enough, her career will be over soon ..... This man was just some nut job, far from being courageous and brave. The DPD needs to thank their lucky stars it wasn't some pissed off average Joe.
